These puppy mittens are not only fun, but they are toastie warm. Knitted from worsted wool yarn, (Cascade 220), the hand portion measures 5 - 5 1/2" with long wristed ribbing measuring 2 1/4". This insures there will be no gap between wrist and coat sleeve. Puppy's nose and eyes are embroidered so there are no button type additions to pull off. Size is appropriate for children ages 4 through 8 with medium sized hand.
